There are fast flow hoses with taps on the side of each water container, these tubes are used to fill watering cans in as little as 20 seconds.
Yes, this is possible. You will need a specialist rainwater diverter. We do not stock these but recommend looking at the Graf Rapido or Garantia Rain Collector Avanti to see if suitable for your downpipe. The pipe they supply is bigger than our inlet pipe so you will need to reduce it down to 19mm inside diameter. If you are unsure, please contact us and we will be happy to provide you with expert advice.
No, the Rainwater Terrace water butt is made of high-quality durable frost resistant plastic that can withstand cold temperatures.
No, if there hasn’t been any rain and your water butt is empty you can water the clip-on planters by filling the lid tray with water. This can be done by unclipping a planter and filling through where the planter fits or fill each tray through an empty planter slot if there is one.
The planters can only draw on the water in the planter trays they are clipped onto. They top themselves up when it rains. If they do dry out you can simply top them up with water from your Rainwater Terrace or, if they are empty, from the kitchen tap. Just remove one of the planters and top up the whole tray from there in one go.
We do recommend that you add plenty of horticultural grit to your compost to help drainage, but you can also open up the holes in the bottom of your side planters to make them drain more quickly. Use a small Phillips screw driver or something similarly sharp.
